Just look at this RARE piece of saxophone history!
Buffet Apogee Silver plated alto saxophone from 1904!
These relatively uncommon horns (primarily because they were over 20% more expensive than other Buffet models that didn't have all of the additional keywork) were an improvement and extension over the "Evette-Schaeffer System" models that were introduced in 1887.
This odd keywork served as the inspiration for the Holton Rudy Wiedoeft model, several models of Beaugnier horns (most famously, the Rationale and Semi-Rationale) and the Allen Loomis prototypes.
